Pamoja Education to teach world-class Cambridge secondary curriculum globally online from September 2019
Thousands of Cambridge International schools across the world to be able to offer new range of courses online
23 March 2019, Dubai: Online learning provider Pamoja Education, the sole provider of online International Baccalaureate Diploma Programmes, has been approved to become a Cambridge International School to teach its world-leading IGCSE and International AS and A Level programmes online from September 2019. This approval means Pamoja will now be able to offer its online courses to the thousands of schools across the world offering Cambridge secondary qualifications each year.
Schools who are able to choose to offer the new courses online will benefit from a broader subject offering, fewer challenges caused by teacher shortages, and more flexible timetables. Students in those schools will have greater subject choice, gain practical experience of new digital technologies, and have greater flexibility of study.
The following courses are to be taught online for the first academic year via Pamoja’s flagship ‘Pamoja Taught’ solution:
- Cambridge IGCSE Business Studies
- Cambridge IGCSE Information and Communication Technology
- Cambridge IGCSE Mathematics
- Cambridge International AS and A Level Business
- Cambridge International AS and A Level Mathematics
Pamoja Taught courses are taught online by experienced Pamoja teachers who are trained in online learning methodologies, and cover the same course content and prepare students for the same assessments as traditional face-to-face courses. Students use the Pamoja Taught online platform to access content at any time, interact with Pamoja teachers and join discussions with other students from around the world.
John Ingram, CEO of Pamoja Education said: “With ten years of expertise in online learning exclusively for International Baccalaureate programmes, expanding our offering to Cambridge curricula is a natural progression for Pamoja. Cambridge’s global community and world leading curricula mean we can now help a new generation of students reach their potential, and we look forward to supporting Cambridge International Schools worldwide in broadening their subject offering through Pamoja Taught online courses.”
Cambridge IGCSE is the world’s most popular international qualification for 14 to 16-year olds, taken in over 150 countries and in more than 4700 schools around the world. There are over 800,000 subject entries for Cambridge IGCSE exams each year. Cambridge International AS and A Level qualifications are taken in 134 countries with more than 545,000 subject entries each year.
Every year, nearly a million students from 10,000 schools in 160 countries prepare for their future with Cambridge programmes and qualifications. Success with Cambridge often gives students admission to the world’s best universities – in the US, the UK, Australia, Canada, Germany and beyond.
